Balsamic Nectar Named a 2016 sofi™ Award Winner 3,200 Products Competed for the Prestigious Specialty Food Association Award

We are truly honored.  Balsamic Nectar has been named the gold place winner for Outstanding Vinegar in the Specialty Food Association’s 2016 sofi™ Award competition.  For me, this is like winning an Oscar for Best Actor in the specialty food world!

A sofi is the top honor in the $120.5 billion specialty food industry. “sofi” stands for Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation and represents the best of the best from members of the Specialty Food Association.

Balsamic Nectar was selected by a national panel of specialty food experts from more than 3,200 entries across 28 awards categories including Outstanding Chocolate, Cheese, and Savory Snack. Every eligible entry is carefully assessed by passionate and knowledgeable food professionals including chefs, culinary experts, academics, food writers, and category buyers.

This is truly a dream come true to be recognized with a sofi.  Our goal was to create a product that would rival the finest Traditional Balsamic Vinegar products from Italy, but at a much more affordable price.  This recognition is very meaningful and supports our efforts to spread the word to more Americans who love great ingredients.  If you’d like to learn more about the sofi and this year’s winners, check out their website, sofi awards.  

And a special thank you to our customers who keep us passionate about creating great products to enhance your dining experience!
